Actress Denise Richards says she and ex-husband Charlie are like “brother and sister”.

The actress – who has two daughters, Sam (7), and six-year-old Lola, with the former Two and a Half Men actor – admits the pair enjoy a close relationship as they know it’s important to get on for the sake of their children.

“It’s our Modern Family I suppose. We’ve actually become like brother and sister, we really have. We’ve become very, very good friends. When we all spend time together, it’s great for the kids and for us too. We actually get along.” She says.

Although their break-up was initially acrimonious, Denise says they decided to put their problems behind them and concentrate on being good parents.

“I think the key is making it about the kids. The stuff between the couple… if you’re divorced… it’s no longer about you anymore. You have to be the bigger person and make it about the kids and so that’s what we’re doing.” Denise says.
